This is my third pregnancy in the last 9 months, and because of the first (and then second) m/c, my doc was drawing hcg levels every couple of days when I first realized I was pregnant. I had my first "real" OB appt on Tues at 7 weeks, and he did a basic OB profile but DID NOT run a beta hcg. Everything looks fine, but I was still curious, so I had him add the hcg test. I got a call back this morning saying that it was 6100 on Tuesday, and that that was "wonderful" according to the nurse. I asked her where that falls in the range, and she said it was within the range for 6-8 weeks.
Unfortunately, I got off the phone with her and did a google search for a levels chart and according to the two charts I found online, 6100 would be low for 7 weeks.
Am I just being neurotic? Should I trust the nurse and not pay attention to the online charts? As far as I can tell, I am still having pregnancy symptoms, so should I just be happy that it appears I am still pregnant TODAY and not worry? Or should I ask to have it drawn again to see if it has doubled since Tuesday? It could be neverending...
What are your experiences with hcg levels?
